Chart: Emerging Markets Sovereign CDS

June 12, 2018

Another update to a really important chart for emerging markets, this one shows the median 5-year sovereign CDS premium across 14 emerging market countries.  Basically it is a market-based measure of sovereign credit risk for emerging markets.  As noted previously, the fact that the indicator has crossed up through its 200-day moving average is key, particularly against the backdrop of softer macro data for EM and ongoing rate hikes and quantitative tightening from the Fed (and thus, a stronger US dollar).  As I showed in yesterdays chart on EMFX, the path of the US dollar is going to be key for EM risk assets, and that path points to caution at this point.
